Development and pilot line validation of a modular re-configuable laser process head

  • Inicio: 01/09/2016

AIMEN leads the development of a multifunctional co-axial in-process quality assurance system, based on the embedded multimodal spectral device technology developed in the MAShES project.
ModuLase aims to develop, validate & demonstrate a rapidly re-configurable laser process head that:
- Is capable of welding, cladding and cutting, through the use of three modular end-effectors
- Includes intelligent sensor technologies for in-process monitoring
- Is linked to an intelligent system, in order to achieve adaptive process control, quality assurance, and semi-automated process parameter configuration.
The ModuLase project aims to develop, validate and demonstrate an adaptable laser process head, capable of welding, cladding and cutting, to increase the flexibility of laser systems. This will be achieved through the use of a Beam Forming Unit (BFU) and modular end-effectors (akin to changing a computer numerical control (CNC) machining tool). The project will focus on materials and geometries for high value manufacturing applications in the power, automotive and aerospace sectors. The ModuLase system will also include intelligent sensor technologies to support adaptive process control and quality assurance.
